Blocking Seats
« on: September 10, 2014, 07:25:19 PM »
"If you are serving a low demand route with a larger aircraft,
you can here manually block certain amount of the seats from being sold.

Enter here the maximum number of seats you wish to be able to sell on any sector of this route."

OKAY- I want to block seats on the return sector only.... How do I do this???

This is the area you need you just set the amount of seats you wish to use on your plane, that would be for both directions. you cannot change it for the outgoing journey then a different amount for the in coming journey

eg If you got a 65 seat plane yet the demand at the airport is 55 then you put 55 in the little box. once the demand rises you can change the amount of seats to be used.

No need to be that precise in either direction : you only want to avoid falling foul of the over-supply rules : so as long as you leave enough seats to keep supply under 200% in ether direction, you are good to go :

example : your plane has 100 seats : the demand is 55 outbound and 46 inbound : the outbound leg is fine as it is under 200% supply : the inbound leg needs seats blocked to about 85 to keep nicely under 200% supply : so, block at that figure and both legs are safe from any anti-monopoly infractions, but will still carry all the demand both ways.
